Resident Missionary Work

 

 

Resident Missionary Work is the focal activity of GMI to accomplish its vision, “A fully reached nation with an indigenous church in every village.” It is a church - planting programme in the unreached villages. Primarily, the location is identified where the Gospel has not been preached or reached effectively. Then, a missionary couple or a couple of missionaries are commissioned and posted in that location. They get acquainted with the local people and preach the Good News to them. They conduct house to house visits, pray for the needs, pray for the sick and give them literature about Jesus Christ. Subsequently, prayer cells will be formed in houses where they are welcomed. Eventually these prayer cells will be turned to House Churches. Then, according to the availability of the land and resources, a prayer shed will be constructed in village fashion. Gradually it may turn to a hall in indigenous style. These Church planters are working in 16 states of India and the neighboring countries: Nepal and Bangladesh. At present, a total number of 1600 villages are concentrated by these church planters. Now (2010) GMI has 212 such Missionaries and 324 congregations
